Re: [minimod][v0.3.1] Gearbox - weapon selection mod

Post by Enjay »

I have noticed that, occasionally, pressing a slot key can go straight to a weapon rather than calling up the gearbox. I've noticed it in several situations but I'm not sure exactly what makes it happen.

It doesn't just happen with starting weapons (I think, anyway) but this is a good way to reproduce the situation:

Start Doom with gearbox loaded.
Press 1 to pick the fist weapon.

It should immediately change to the fist rather than opening the gearbox. After this has happened once, it doesn't seem to happen again. So, I can change back to the pistol and thereafter pressing 1 calls up the gearbox.

I do not have "slot keys select if weapon is only one in slot" enabled and I do have "intercept slot keys" active.

I want to once again say thank you for this wonderful mod. This mod will now be on my list of "must-have mods".

But there are a few comments:

1. For some reason, when freezing, the fireballs (Imp, Cacodemon, etc.) continue to move, which greatly violates the overall picture of freezing. Is this just me? If not, is there a way to fix it in the future?

2. Is it possible to add support for older versions of GZDoom in the future? At least 4.4.0. Since version 4.5.0 has added a lot of compatibility problems with other mods and me have to limit yourself to something.

Thanks!

Yes, should be doable.

Thanks for the heads up! Fixed in dev build, will be in a bugfix release soon.

Just checked, fireballs freeze too. Are you playing with a mod?

No. Gearbox is possible because of features added in GZDoom 4.5.0. Compatibility issues must be reported to mod authors and/or reported as GZDoom bugs. There is no other way.

Thank you kindly. It certainly fixes the situation for the example scenario that I posted (Doom 2 selecting the fist) and after playing with a few other mods, I have not encountered the problem elsewhere either. :thumb:

Bugfix update: v0.3.2.

Changelog since v0.3.1:

- fixed an issue with slot keys not always being processed properly;
- wheel: fixed incorrect reaction to out of bounds angle in second wheel;
- removed a message for obsolete key bind which may have caused "Alias tried to recurse" console error.

Wheel: a set of measures for clearer view in case of lots of weapons in a single slot:
- limit minimal angle between wheel hands;
- draw the selected weapon over other weapons in the second wheel;
- made wheel hands transparent in the middle.

Yes, I play with mods. This is DoomRL + Monster Pack + Doom RPG.

PS: I noticed that I would like to move the weapon selection blocks, but there is no such option. Although there is such a possibility for the wheel. Could you add it for the blocks?

DoomRL Monsters Pack makes projectiles not affected by time freezing. It already causes an issue with PyWeaponWheel. There is an answer from Yholl why projectiles are not frozen. I don't quite understand it, but I may have not played DoomRL enough. In any case, I cannot do anything here.

I thought there would be no need to move blocks. It's doable, thanks for the suggestion!

Hey dude, is this LZDoom compatible? My PC is a potato with integrated graphics and I can't run GZ, only LZ.

At the moment, no. LZDoom hasn't caught up with newest GZDoom features yet, and I cannot backport Gearbox to LZDoom without these features.

If you're comfortable using Slade, you can comment out the incompatible lines and it will work in LzDoom, though the wheel style probably wont work well (or at all). I just use block style and haven't run into any issues.

Last time I checked, there we two issues with LZDoom: additional drawing parameters used in the wheel and bindings.getAllKeysForCommand function in zscript/gearbox/input_processor.zs in isKeyForCommand function. This function can be replaced with its older version.

I know nothing about how SLADE works mate. I mainly want this mod as a replacement for PyWeaponWheel v0.3

This mod fixes the one gripe I have with Doom's standard weapon selection system.
Normally, if you have both the shotgun and SSG, you can't just double-tap 3 from another weaponslot to instantly bring up the pump-action. No, you need to press 3 once, wait for your current weapon to lower and for the SSG to raise before you can press 3 again and it brings up the regular shotgun. Not a fan of using the mousewheel, as most mice I used don't have a good sensor or tactile notched scroll.

Poop. Forgot I had to do that too!
